My husband and I have been together for over 8 years and married for almost 3. He's almost 27 and I'm almost 26. I have always known that I want children. Most likely 2. My whole life I've had it iplanned out in my head that I would have my first child at the age of 27 and my last at the age of 30. It just sounded perfect to me.
Now that I am getting really close to that age, I still don't want children. I am still at the phase in my life where I want to be able to travel wherever and do whatever I want, whenever I want. I was a nanny for 7 years (just recently quit) and I have my teaching degree, so I KNOW how much work children are and I KNOW that I am not ready for that yet!
I also know that I am still really young and have plenty of baby-producing years ahead of me. I just personally never wanted to start my family in my 30's. I've always wanted to be a young mom. The desire is just NOT there yet, and my husband agrees.
Is there anyone else that had a certain idea in their head of when they thought they'd want children, but it just isn't playing out that way? I'm almost frustrated at myself, but definitely don't want to force it. Every year that has passed since we've been married I think to myself, "This time next year we'll start TTC". It just keeps getting pushed out further and further...
